MySQL opens to Bazaar

Bazaar RCS

Today MySQL announced that it has switched from its previous RCS to Bazaar with its web associated Launchpad.

The move intends to facilitate contributions by the community.

There is much excitement at Canonical, the company that supports Bazaar. And if you want to see a really happy man, check Elliot Murphy's blog.

A popular question is "Why not mercurial?", to which Kaj answers that the switch to Bazaar was planned long before the Sun acquisition.

So now the Bazaar community rejoices and the MySQL geeks are already hard at work.
